The Stylish Superman Cape

The Stylish Superman Cape

You ever buy something and have no idea what it’s called? Usually, I don’t. I used to (an occasionally still do) sew, so I know the names for a lot of clothing items. I was lost on this one–I thought it was a kaftan until I googled “kaftan” and from there kinda gave up. Some friends declared it a cape, which I thought was funny, so I decided to go with that. I make a pretty stylish superwoman, too 😉

We’re at the point in the year where the weather changes by about 10°F within an hour, so it was a cold morning and pretty warm afternoon. I needed something that was both functionally warm, but looked like summer. Rules are made to be broken, so I wore a mostly white ensemble after labor day to ensure the blue and orange dashiki print on my cape would stand out. I paired it with my favorite lace-up booties and a structured gold collar necklace. Details below!

Do you have any items in your closet you didn’t know the name of? Also, would you guys be interested in a post about fashion rules that are meant to be broken? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Lots of love,
